The 21-year-old musician/actress guest-starred as exchange student Sunshine Corazon for three episodes of Glee.
“Friendship is not defined by the length of time two people share together. One defining moment is all it takes for two individuals to call each other friends. Cory Monteith‘s life, short as it was, taught me that lesson. His death, sudden as it was, taught me that lesson.”
In her letter, Charice shares a heartfelt memory of Cory surprising her by making sure all of their Glee co-stars knew it was her birthday at midnight on set.
“To his fans around the world who mourn his passing, I am with you. I know how it feels. Let’s hold each other’s hand. Let’s remember Cory and continue to celebrate his music, his craft, his life. He will forever be in our hearts. I wish I could also embrace Cory‘s loved ones — his family and friends, his girlfriend Lea Michele. I will pray for all of you, too.”
“Thank you, Mr. Cool. My grateful heart will always miss you — especially so on my birthday.”
“Yes, I am a tomboy,” Charice said, using a common Filipino colloquial term for lesbian. “I don’t know what’s the problem with that. Because for me, there isn’t a problem with that.”
“Now, I’d like to ask for forgiveness to those who aren’t able to understand,” Charice added. “I just wanna say thank you personally to all my fans, to all the people who are still supporting me, who are still there for me, and honestly I am very, very happy.”

Here Comes The Boom follows a high school biology teacher (James) who looks to become a successful mixed-martial arts fighter in an effort to raise money to prevent extra-curricular activities from being axed at his cash-strapped school.
EW reports the 18-year-old singing superstar will play a “foreign exchange student whose killer vocals get Rachel (Lea Michele) contemplating murder.”
Charice posted on Twitter, “Itâ€™s official. Iâ€™m on Glee (next season) but story behind it. When the rumor came out, it wasnâ€™t true. But then after that, I tried to audition. And I made it!!! Letâ€™s party!!!!”
Earlier this month, Charice was rumored to join the hit FOX series but in the end wasn’t true.
